What does “I am Alpha and Omega” mean?

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    I was thinking and praying about this unused Bible Study question, about its meaning beyond the fact that alpha and omega are the beginning and end of the Greek alphabet.

    It occurred to me that if God had told me this, He may have said, “I am A and Z” — or perhaps “I am A to Z” — since Greek is not my native language. Thinking about it that way, I felt it would mean the beginning and the end, but it would also mean more. It would mean He was all, and complete. It would mean that there can be no accurate description or understanding of God and His universe without the language of Love, the vocabulary of Truth, the grammar of Life, etc.

    I am so grateful that God has imparted this way to understand Him that we have in Christian Science. Thank you!


    Thank you. This is an excellent post. It also speaks to the infinitude of the Love and the Truth which are God. God is without beginning and end. The Truth and Love which are God has no beginning and it will never end. Time and space and all the mortal sense of limitation that go along with it are meaningless to God. They should be meaningless to us as well. This is our divine authority for dropping all sense of limitation about ourselves and others. Mrs. Evans taught us to put “unlimited” after our name whenever we think of ourselves. I am Bob Jones, unlimited. Why? Because that’s what our infinite, good God created.
